Immerse yourself in 3-D sculptural artwork by University of Houston-Clear Lake’s graduate students in the latest exhibit in the UHCL Art Gallery, on display Friday through Aug. 10 in the Bayou Building Art Gallery, 2700 Bay Area Blvd., in Houston.

Curated by Clay Leonard, assistant professor of art, the exhibit highlights the research interests of seven graduate students in Sculpture and Ceramics studio courses: Natasha Gallagher, David Gonzalez, Holly Gottula, David Moya, Wyatt Schultz, Margaret Solomon-Bird, and Colleen Steblein.

“The work was chosen to represent the diversity in expression and highlight each artists’ individual research ideas,” Leonard said.

Entrance to the gallery is free, and it is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to noon Fridays. For more information, call Jeff Bowen, coordinator of audience development, 281-283-3376 or visit www.uhcl.edu/art-gallery.
